Hamann Lamborghini Murcilago LP640
*Ouch. Or even wow. German tuning house, Hamann, has taken the LP640 and added to its considerable presence. So much so that it'll seem like there are no other cars on the road. Just check that hood scoop. Aerodynamic appendages are available in fiberglass or the way more serious carbon-Kevlar. Wheels are 20-inch Edition Race items, with huge 13-inch-wide rears. And with a double-pipe exhaust made from stainless steel, it will sound as tough as it looks. As part of the package, Hamann offers a carbon-look interior, made according to a customer's specifications and there's the obligatory range of multimedia gadgets to choose from.
MTM Bentley Continental GTC
*This gentleman's express has suddenly become a little less gentlemanly. Motoren Technik Mayer (MTM, for short) obviously felt that 560 hp and 479 lb-ft of torque from its 6.0-liter W12 engine wasn't enough for this convertible, and so offers two levels of tweakery. The first is a beefy 635 hp with 575 lb-ft of torque. The second is 650 hp/586 lb-ft, which also includes an exhaust upgrade. And it doesn't stop there. The suspension can be lowered electronically and MTM will also fit a set of 'Bimoto' 21-inch wheels and a sport braking system. Lucky there's a lot of air in that cabin. This could take your breath away.
Novitec Rosso Ferrari 599 GTB
*It's always a thrill to see what Novitec Rosso will do to new Ferrari models. The 599 GTB Fiorano has been given a stage two power upgrade. The 6.0-liter V12 engine has an extra 25 hp, taking total output to 645 hp, with a peak torque figure of 473 lb-ft. A new stainless steel exhaust joins other modifications, such as the Brembo high-performance braking system featuring 16-inch perforated and ventilated discs with six-piston calipers at both ends, plus stainless steel brake lines. A compression- and rebound-adjustable KW coilover suspension also goes in, complimented by 20-inch wheels up front and 21-inchers at the rear. And just for good measure, NR offers a front lip, rear skirt and side panels for improved aerodynamics. Top speed has only gone up by about 3 mph over the already fast enough 205 mph, but perhaps it's how the car gets there (and slows down) that's the important thing.
